With a proud tradition of serving the Manawatu community for more than 100 years, The Lychway Funeral Directors (formerly Thomas Griggs & Son Ltd) offer support, guidance and a helping hand in your time of need.

We serve Palmerston North and the surrounding towns with care and concern, dedication, personalised service and all with the utmost integrity. We provide the service that families request to best farewell their loved ones. Our peaceful boutique chapel and adjoining catering lounge in the heart of Palmerston North provide a comfortable location for family and friends to gather together to accomplish this.

We can meet with you in our office or in your home and offer a complete funeral service. Our experience and expertise can help guide you through the difficult decisions that need to be made with a bereavement.
